White River Humane Society provides the opportunity to reclaim your pet once it is brought in as a stray. Any stray is dog is held for 5 days, cats will be held for 2 days, then once the holding period is up WRHS will put the stray up for adoption. Proof of ownership must be provided to reclaim your pet including either vet records, rabies certificate, proof of purchase, or microchip. This is to protect your pet from others falsely claiming your beloved pet or worse.
Reclaim Fees are as follows:
$25 First Day (Includes required vaccinations) for altered pet
$50 First Day (Includes required vaccinations) for unaltered pet
$10 Every Day After (Cover costs of housing the pet)
After the first reclaim, the reclaim fees will double with future pick ups.
Once reclaimed, if pet is not already microchipped, WRHS would gladly chip your pet which is covered by the reclaim fees.

We have had several pets come in lately that could have gone home or gone home quicker if their owners would have kept their information updated on the microchips. If you change your phone number, please contact the microchip company to update! If you had your pet microchipped through WRHS contact us and we will update for you.
The WRHS now offers free microchipping, thanks to Bissell Pet Foundation, which is done at the shelter. In order to have your pet microchipped at WRHS, proof of ownership must be provided such as vet records, proof of purchase, or rabies certificate. FREE microchips are provided by the Bissell Pet Foundation (Please call the shelter for more details.)
Benefits of microchipping your pets:
* Microchipping is a permanent method of identification.
* It is fairly painless for your pet. The microchip is small and is injected with a
needle similar to that of a vaccination.
* There is a less chance that someone will steal your pet and get away with it.
* Microchips help identify your pet. If your pet is lost and ends up at an animal
shelter or vet office, your pet can be identified and returned to you.
* Identification information can be easily updated since the information is kept
on a database, it is a simple matter to update your contact information
whenever you move or change phone numbers.
*There have been numerous cases where collars and tags have been lost, but
because of microchipping animals have been returned to their owners from ten
miles to across the country.
